    Stumbled upon this pic and was stumped upon its whereabouts on the Puget Sound? I'm sure it could be ANYWHERE, but wass wondering if anyone is familiar with its backgroud? You can PM if need be. Thanks!

    Looks like freshwater to me, and high water too.
    An "S" river estuary.

    Just curious, why do folks refer to "the" Puget Sound? There is no historical or grammatical rationale for doing so so. I always assumed it was "newcomers", TV talking heads and that sort, but it seems to be becoming more and more common. I've also noticed this unnecessary article being applied to Hood Canal and even to Snoqualmie Pass. By the way, Vancouver's maps originally applied the name Puget Sound (or perhaps Puget's Sound) only to that area south of the Tacoma Narrows. The waters adjacent to Seattle were a part of Admiralty Inlet.

    I think that it depends on what map you are looking at. While the Sound on a whole is/has many names with all of the inlets and bays on it,the main portion is called Puget Sound. I have old maps and I have newer maps and they all say the same thing. It is called Puget Sound. There is no need to go into a history lesson here as most people here just call it the Sound.

    The file name for that pic says southsoundsilver. There is something odd about that pic though. Why is there no dorsal fin and why is the edge of the fish at the dorsum so jagged?

    Trying to conceal the identity of the angler? Looks like the angler's hat (at least) would have been in the picture, maybe partial face as well.

    Randy is right. In fact, look closely and you'll see the outline of the angler's head and hat.

    Look at the trees in the background, three of them are identical where they have been cut and pasted. Also, I agree with Preston. It's like saying, "the New York City."

    That is odd. Why go to all the trouble?

    Maybe he saw you uncork one of your 250' monster casts and was embarrassed to show his face Matt! :thumb:

    So if that is Dennis D. then where did Flyfishsteel get the photo? Hopefully not out of our Gallery under an assumed name. Maybe Flyfishsteel was just trying to protect Dennis and just wanted to know where that was? Sure is a sweet spot when viewed in its entirety.
